IFMA Announces World Workplace Europe

03rd September 2018
 

The International Facility Management Association (IFMA) and alliance partner Facility Management Netherlands (FMN), have announced that the Kromhouthal in Amsterdam is the venue of ‘Facility for Future’ and IFMA’s ‘World Workplace Europe’ Conference and Expo, 20-22 March 2019.

IFMA, which has for many years organized the well-attended World Workplace in America and Asia, brought this concept to Europe two years ago.   Amsterdam in 2019 follows successful shows in Stockholm and Barcelona.  At the same time, FMN hosted a successful ‘Facility for Future’ in 2017 and is organizing this event in a new format.

Lara Paemen, director of IFMA Europe, praised the spirit of collaboration: “IFMA members from Europe and around the world get the opportunity to see interesting examples of professional facility management in a beautiful ambiance and setting.”

FMN chair Natalie Hofman: “The arrival of World Workplace Europe 2019 to Amsterdam is a unique opportunity to link the international context of our field to national relevance.”

During an information meeting earlier this summer, FMN and IFMA presented plans to a broader group of interested industry parties. The partners for Facility for Future — Sodexo, ISS, Hutten and BAM FM responded positively to the iplan to combine both events.

“We are currently further developing the program and the prospectus, so that interested parties can register for a partner package for this special event by mid-September,” Hofman reports.
